    Free youtube server ?

    Does anyone know of a open source system that will play videos, something like youtube but running on our own server with our own video content.

    Why would you want to do this? You can register with youtube.com for free, then host as many videos as you want at their expense!

    With a time limit! Is it something like 12 minutes?

    What if YouTube is blocked by the ISP in our case? There's a reason to do it.

    You should be able to host something on your intranet I would of thought if that's the case.

    I think the OP realises that, that's why (s)he is asking. The question they are asking is what application would you use?

    Another option for Sharepoint schools is the PKS... take a look on http://Codeplex.com/pks

    We use Vhare (vShare Video Sharing Script - YouTube Clone Script, script to start video sharing community) it isn't free but might as well be for $10 :-)

    If you'd like more info get in contact as I've shown a few other Colleges and they are very interested in it and how I've tweaked it for College use.

    We use moodle for video content, I modified the flv play to make it work fullscreen - the hack will be mainstream in the 1.95 release.

    it doesn't auto convert files to flv yet though....
